Make sure to leave not only your vet's name and number, but the office hours as well. Also leave the number and address of the nearest animal emergency clinic in case anything happens during the hours your vet is closed.
Of course a list with the location of items is good too if the sitter is staying in your home. I left directions for the tv, the thermostat, trash day etc...(the leashes are hanging by the door etc...it's easy to forget these folks don't know where we keep things.) I try to leave most things in a central spot so they can get to everything, but it's good to kind of go through the list in your mind and check.
I leave a list with their daily routine. I don't know if that would be helpful if it's someone just stopping by a few times a day.
I was thinking about this the last time we left...we should get together and create a fill in the blank form that we can all use and modify to fit our personal needs.
